DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The plaintiff allegedly tripped and fell over a box containing merchandise which was placed on the floor, at the end of an aisle, in the defendants' store. Under the circumstances, the Supreme Court properly denied the defendants' motion for summary judgment, since the defendants failed to make a prima facie showing of entitlement to judgment as a matter of law (see Naletilic v Dan's Key Food, 47 AD3d 903; Rivera v YMCA of Greater New York, 37 AD3d 579, 580; Westbrook v WR Activities-Cabrera Mkts., 5 AD3d 69; see also Greenstein v R & R of G.C., Inc., 50 AD3d 637).
SKELOS, J.P., FLORIO, HALL and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
